How to show 1/2" reveal lines on Ext. siding

Recommended Posts

I am designing a modern home in Home Designer Pro and am considering using James Hardie fiber cement panels (4' x 8' sheets) that would use trim such as Fry Reglet or Easy Trim at the 1/2" reveal where panels "meet".  What would be your suggestion for giving an approximation to what this might look like on the house design? I might leave the aluminum reveal as is, or might paint to match the panel color, but initially would want to model the aluminum reveal look.

I want to get a sense of the exterior appearance but also want to explore variations of where the vertical and horizontal reveals would be in relationship to the vertical and horizontal exterior line of window and door cladding so as to balance appearance with minimizing the number of cuts as well as wasted material.

 

I have started with making the exterior material stucco as this is in ballpark of my color choice.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Have you searched the forum? I remember discussing this sometime in the last year or two.

Thank you both. I will look at the articles and should be able to create a custom material.

We discussed this type of siding and how to model it.

 

Numerous ways to do the panels. Not sure a custom material is needed here.
